Food & Nutrition 


RWJ Hamilton's patient menus are based on American Heart Association guidelines. Your diet is prescribed by your physician.  If you have any questions about your diet prescription and/or your diet limitations, you may ask your physician or call a registered dietitian at ext. 6691.

RWJ Hamilton provides patient meals through a Food-on-Demand system. A room service ambassador visits each patient with a restaurant-style menu and explains how to order meals.  

5-Star Cuisine: RWJ Hamilton’s Dining Excellence
Food-on-Demand room service is designed so that you may customize a meal according to your preferences, and order meals as close as possible to your preferred meal times. Each meal is prepared individually and based on dietary considerations and menu requests. 

When ready to order a meal, all you have to do is dial ext. 5555 from your bedside telephone and place your order. After you have placed your order, you will receive your meal within 45 minutes to an hour.

  • Breakfast ordering begins at 6:30 a.m. Breakfast foods are available at all meals.
  • Lunch orders may be placed starting at 11 a.m.
  • Dinner orders may be placed at 4 p.m. Meal orders may be placed until 7 p.m.
If you are unable to participate in the program, your nurse will identify you in the computer as a non-select, and you will automatically receive meals based on your diet order and any identified food preferences. 

If you have any questions about your diet prescription and/or your diet limitations, you may ask your physician or call a registered dietitian at ext. 6691.

Family members or friends who wish to eat in a patient's room may visit the hospital's café to purchase their own meal and bring it back to the patient's room. The Roma Bank Garden Cafe is cash only and open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., weekends and holidays from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
